The okonomiyaki, the spiced apple pancakes, and Los Drowned were all incredible. The service was very good, and the atmosphere is very aesthetically pleasant and comfortable. The prices are extremely reasonable. I highly recommend it. Thanks, Chef Izard!

Everything was very good with a little twist. Nachos and pork belly fries for appetizers were amazing. Apple pancakes were heavenly and chicken sandwich very good with fresh bun. We had to wait for the buns to be cooked but they were worth the wait. Want to go back again and try more items.

The service was great and the food was just as good. I have been wanting to go since they opened and I just keep forgetting. I am glad I got to come here. I would recommend everything. I also was very happy that they offered vegan, dairy free and gluten free menus.

Everything was good, lots of flavor complexity. The nachos were the best. Creamy cheese, sweet spicy peppers, pulled pork, chewy and crispy chips, what’s not to love!

Arrived 5 minutes late for our reservation having started 20 minutes early to get there. We were very embarrassed. When they tell you it's 10 mins away via taxi I don't think that includes stop lights and traffic. They were very kind. 4 stars simply reflects our individual waitress. Food was fantastic, runners who brought our appetizers fantastic, runners who brought food and took dishes away fantastic, even one entree that came mintues after the rest of our party of 4 were served, delivered fanfkingtastic. But our actual take our drinks order, ask simple questions, then place our order waitstaff was completley INDIFFERENT, not even actually conversing in anyway that might indicate a choice to eat here was a good one. I'm thinking it was an off night and not directed at our midwestern in town for a dental conference look and Tourists attire. I stil tipped very well knowing those other runners see some of that too.

Our server was rude. Like super rude. After waiting 15 minutes for her to come over to our table I peeked my head around from the booth and asked for a drink menu. Her response was “what’s your emergency?!!” Ummmm ok. And things did not go up hill from there. The food was just ok. Nothing to go out of your way for. If you are desperate and bump into this place. I guess give it a try. Maybe you will have better service and food.

Had a wonderful birthday meal for my friend! She loved the veggie burger and I always get the chicken kebab when I visit. The service was genuine and made us feel very happy with our choice to come in and celebrate.

Food was delicious. The deconstructed lox plate is my favorite. The crumpets are best!
The fish tostadas were so tasty, crunchy and flavorful. Didn’t mind the cabbage.
Last, the Chinese sausage breakfast dish was yummy. Love the kumquats that we’re added to dish.

The brussel sprouts were very salty along with the pork belly sandwich. Service was phenomenal though, he was cracking jokes which made it fun

Very disappointed in the corned beef hash. Home made corned beef did not meet expectations. My colleague enjoyed the Rueben Sandwich.

Place is loud! Took cute pictures in the photo booth there. Had the weird but good recommendation, the one that translated to “yum.” Also, we had the French toast with fried chicken on top! Very different food and delicious.

Shane was an exemplary server. The food was great, and the vibe was great, but Shane made our experience into what it was. Which is nothing short of unforgettable.

Great food! All very fresh and innovative. The restaurant was very busy with brunch crowd and seemed a little understaffed with servers. We will definitely go back but maybe try a time a little less busy.

All around the service was stellar. From the front of house staff to our server to really anyone we came in contact with. The food was phenomenal as always. This is quickly becoming a go-to and its easy to recommend to friends/out of towners.

My boyfriend and I live in a different state but try to come eat at Little Goat at least once a year, usually for Valentines Day. We love the atmosphere and change of menu items.

The Little Goat had such a fun atmosphere. It truly encapsulated a diner feel. Our server was incredibly helpful and had the most delicious suggestions. It was a great opportunity to try another of Stephanie Izard's restaurants! It had much more availability than the other spots (however, we also tried the other restaurants) - so if you are having trouble finding reservations at one of her other restaurants, try Little Goat! It won't disappoint.
